The package and product GUIDs are indeed randomly generated for each
build. It's the UpgradeCode that has to remain the same. But a
MajorUpgrade does not occur if a.b.c of a.b.c.d of the version number
remains the same - ie, the nightlies. That means nightly users will get
more than one entry in the add/remove programs applet, among other (also
not too serious) things.
